MADRID (Reuters) – Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said in an address to the nation on Saturday that people will be allowed out to exercise from May 2 if the number of new coronavirus cases continues to fall.
Sanchez said people would be allowed outside for sport or to go for a walk with a person with whom they live if the evolution of the pandemic “remains favourable”.
Spaniards have been living under one of Europe’s strictest lockdowns since March 14. They are allowed out for food, medicine and essential work but not to exercise.
